“When I look down at this golden statue, may it remind me and every little child that no matter where you are from, your dreams are valid. ” - Lupita Nyong’o wins Best Actress in a Supporting Role for “12 Years a Slave” at the 86th Annual Academy Awards.
She wore a custom Prada ice blue gown that was inspired by champagne bubbles. Little sequins ran along the pleats giving the dress subtly enchanting details. On the red carpet Lupita, a native Kenyan, described her dress stating, “It’s a blue that reminds me of Nairobi, so I wanted to have a little bit of home.” She paired the gorgeous dress with a sparkling headband and mint green nail polish. Her good luck charm was a family totem, a little frog ring that she wore on her pinky finger.
